Wishing you a very happy and prosperous Akshaya Tritiya!
A holy and auspicious Indian festival, Akshaya Tritiya, also known as Akti or Akha Teej, is considered propitious for new beginnings and ringing in prosperity. This day witnesses launch of new ventures, weddings, and investments to build assets. And, since gold symbolises wealth and prosperity, most often people associate Akshaya Tritiya with buying gold to ring in ever-increasing opulence in their lives. However, scriptures describe offering charity on Akshaya Tritiya to be very virtuous and the benefits of the good deeds remain eternally with the doer. So, this Akshaya Tritiya celebrate the rich virtue of benevolence in you!
